Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Appendices to the Minutes of Evidence

Annex B

Letter to Ms Maria Fernandes, Mapesbury Communications Ltd, from Mr Gerry Cheung, Chartered Accountant

I refer to our telephone conversation this morning concerning the Parliamentary Commissioner's request for information with respect to Mapesbury Communications Limited.

We confirm that we acted as accountants for the company since its inception until 31 October 1996. We must point out that these matters do go back to 7 years.

Having reviewed our files, which we prepared based on the information and explanation supplied by the company, we are happy to confirm that there were no payments made to Mr Vaz personally or to his Parliamentary office for the period to 31 October 1996.
